It’s been a while since we’ve heard some exciting news about the Orlando Toyota Yaris, but it was definitely worth the wait! It was announced that Toyota has partnered with Mazda to make some big changes! The next generation Toyota Yaris will receive a Mazda Skyactiv engine and go into production alongside the Mazda2 in Salamanca, Mexico!
Along with this new technology, this new Toyota in Orlando will receive a complete redesign to give it a fresh new style all its own! Although these changes aren’t set to take place until late 2015 to early 2016, we couldn’t wait to share this exciting news!
Orlando Toyota Yaris to offer increased fuel efficiency!
If you’re not familiar with the Mazda Skyactiv engine, you may be wondering what the big deal is. This new engine will bring a ton of benefits to the Toyota Yaris in Orlando!
- The 2014 Toyota Yaris already gets great fuel efficiency with a fuel economy rating of 30 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. With this new technology, its fuel efficiency will skyrocket to get you even further for less!
- The current Mazda3 is bigger than this new Toyota and receives an estimated 41 mpg highway, which is why we look forward to seeing how much more efficient the Toyota Yaris will get with this new engine.
- With the Mazda Skyactiv engine, this new Toyota will be one of the few options in the Toyota lineup with a direct-injection engine, which can cut fuel consumption by 15 percent!
- It’s also a high-compression engine, which will improve everyday driving with more torque!
Even with the same engine, this new Toyota will be unique from the Mazda2, as Toyota will be designing the interior and exterior. This new image promises to appeal to a younger audience and make the Toyota Yaris in Orlando even more fun to drive!
Explore the partnership with Toyota and Mazda
Toyota is always looking for ways to improve our lineup of new Toyota and as they say, two heads are better than one! This is why it partnered with Madza to build a subcompact vehicle, which was announced in 2012. Like we said, this partnership also includes plans for production of the Toyota Yaris at the Mazda plant. This will improve the production efficiency of this new Toyota, so it can get into your hands even faster!
This isn’t the first time Toyota has joined up with other automakers. Partnerships like this have proven to be successful in the past with vehicles like the Orlando Scion FR-S, which was made in conjunction with Toyota and Subaru. Toyota is also currently working with BMW to create a new sports car that may even be a hybrid!
Although it’ll be a while before the redesigned Toyota Yaris will hit the market, you can check out the 2014 model right now! Our Toyota dealership is located at 3575 Vineland Rd. near the Mall at Millenia. You can also visit Toyota of Clermont at 16851 State Road 50.
Now that you know some of the details about what’s to come for this vehicle, we want to hear from you! What would you like to see in the new redesign?
